“Our Proposition is that of a Dialogue”

This exhibition whose title pays homage to Lygia Clark, marks the culmination of three years’ experience gained in LSAD, and celebrates the diversity of perspectives unified by the unique ethos of self-expression promoted in both courses. The students enter into a dialogue with two valued historic sites of industry, expanding the creative hub of LSAD into Limerick’s City Centre, and re-opening these buildings to the public.

The work stems from internal perspectives of the world manifested in material interaction, with each individual proposition becoming unified in conversation with the shared space. The intention of this joint exhibition is to focus on these exchanges; between artist and viewer, between the digital and analogue material languages, between the bodily and the sensory working in tandem with the machine.

This provocative dichotomy is challenged and cross-examined throughout the exhibition, encouraging dialogue between all aspects of participation.

“Alone We do not Exist.”

This exhibition has been curated by Vicky Langan & Maximilian Le Cain, both Cork based artists working in a performative film making partnership for the past ten years, recent works including the Arts Council funded feature film Inside produced for TULCA 2017.

The opening will be launched by Valerie Connor, lecturer on BA Photography, School of Media, Technological University Dublin, curator of TULCA 2013 and recently the invited curator of Active Archive – Slow Institution, research project and exhibition organized by Project Art Centre.
